The existance of planar graphs with odd girth 2k + 1 and high girth that cannot be (2k + 1, k)-coloured was left as an open question by Klostermeyer and Zang. In this note we show that such graphs exist for arbitraryly large k. We also show that these graphs have fractional chromatic number greater than 2 + 1/k.
